The state of Minnesota requires that all students born after 01/01/1957 be immunized against diphtheria and tetanus (TD), and measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) and provide their vaccination dates.
If you have had measles, mumps, or rubella, the law requires that you either have a blood titre (blood test) done to prove immunity (please send a copy of the laboratory work) or a physician's signed document attesting to the disease, and also the month and year in which you had the disease.
There is no titre that is acceptable as proof of immunity to diptheria-tetanus.
Students are to enter the following information into Murphy Online under the Student Service tab:
- The 2 dates of your measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccination
- The date of the tetanus-diphtheria (TD) vaccine (must be within the past ten years)
Note: All new students must enter their MMR and TD dates by the 45th day of class. Click here to enter your Immunization Record
If you have a medical condition that precludes the administration of the necessary vaccinations, please have a physician sign a medical waiver explaining the condition and why the immunizations should not be done.
If you have a philosophical objection to the immunizations, please write the objection and have your signature notarized by a notary public. Please be aware that if an outbreak of measles, mumps or rubella does occur, persons requesting a medical waiver or philosophical objection will not be allowed to attend classes until the outbreak is over.
International students also need to be screened for TB and may be required to have a tuberculin (TB) test. We provide these tests at Health Services.
The following immunizations are also recommended for students but not required. They can also be entered into Murphy Online.
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- Inlfuenza Vaccine
- Polio Vaccine
